These new advancements in technology are not only changing in medical advances, new social media, smaller phones, but they are also opening up a whole new world to the way we perceive sports . Recently one of the newest technological advances to hit the sports world is “Drone Racing”, which consists of a pilot remote controlling a drone through a course reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour. While this is all fun and games, how is the audience suppose to keep track of a thing the size of a football reaching speeds of that magnitude. This article examines how currently you can view in a first person perspective via camera on the drone or you can view from mounted cameras around the track, if interested it also presents videos of past races to give you a better idea.
